Both sides are right
Felicity Foy is quite correct in noting the amount being spent on Kerikeri roads, especially when, for example, Okahu Road residents have been begging for seal for years and Heath Road, with its tourist attraction and avocado orchards which contribute to our economy remains unsealed as well.
But Rod Brown’s also right. Kerikeri traffic is a nightmare and it’s time the congestion was addressed. The Waipapa Road roundabout’s a good thing (and thanks to Shane Jones for being decisive) if it doesn’t simply mean that instead of traffic backed up along Waipapa Road, there’ll be tailbacks of traffic coming north
